"Amazing young musicians"

The performers from Saturday's concert

Six talented young musicians performed in a A Musical Evening at St Mary's Church, Sulhamstead on Saturday. The event was organised by Berkshire Music and Arts, a not for profit organisation that encourages and nurtures the talent of local young musicians, actors and writers.

The evening was enjoyed by a packed church who saw a varied programme of works by well known and lesser known composers played by musicians aged from 11 to mid teens. The finale consisted of two works played by a quartet of adult saxophonists.

Berkshire Music and Arts director Michelle Cane said "We feel very lucky to have such amazing musicians perform for us, so a very big thank you!"

All proceeds from the concert will go towards the Berkshire Music and Arts festival, to be held at Ufton Court in January.

Welcome to Oil


If the Living Art Hungerford gallery were a band, curator Justin Cook would have cited “artistic differences” as the reason for his departure. He has now cut loose from the family firm to do his own thing at ‘Oil’, just a few doors down the road. TRISH LEE spoke to him about his new gallery, which recently launched with an exhibition in its ‘Boiler Room’
